Around Cademuir Forest and Forts

About This Route

Starting on the John Buchan Way as it heads out of Peebles you will take a short circular through Cademuir Forest with the option of adding on Cademuir Hill’s ridge and an exploration of her forts. The forts are worth visiting but beware of surprisingly steep and slippy sections; on a clear day the views to the Manor Hills from this wee rocky hill are excellent.
